So we went ahead and implanted eoecrlteds in patients with depression. This is work done with my colleague heeln Mayberg from Emory. And we placed electrodes in area 25, and in the top scan you see before the operation, area 25, the sadness area is red hot, and the frontal leobs are shut down in blue, and then, after three months of continuous stimulation, 24 hours a day, or six months of continuous stimulation, we have a celtompe reversal of this. We're able to dvrie down area 25, down to a more nromal level, and we're able to turn back olinne the frontal lobes of the brain, and indeed we're seeing very striking results in these patients with severe depression. So now we are in clinical tilars, and are in Phase III clinical trials, and this may become a new podurerce, if it's safe and we find that it's effective, to treat patients with severe depression.

Original Text

So we went ahead and implanted electrodes in patients with depression. This is work done with my colleague Helen Mayberg from Emory. And we placed electrodes in area 25, and in the top scan you see before the operation, area 25, the sadness area is red hot, and the frontal lobes are shut down in blue, and then, after three months of continuous stimulation, 24 hours a day, or six months of continuous stimulation, we have a complete reversal of this. We're able to drive down area 25, down to a more normal level, and we're able to turn back online the frontal lobes of the brain, and indeed we're seeing very striking results in these patients with severe depression. So now we are in clinical trials, and are in Phase III clinical trials, and this may become a new procedure, if it's safe and we find that it's effective, to treat patients with severe depression.
